A few questions about Staub cocotte

iliria | Jul 7, 2011 01:02 PM

I have been deliberating for a few months now to buy a cocotte (round or oval). I was torn between Le Creuset and Staub and have finally decided to go with Staub. I prefer the cherry red or the grenadine colour.

I have checked the Staub website and the PDF catalogue that it shows there is from 2009. There isn't a newer one by the looks of it. Is Staub website not being updated anymore following their acquisition by Henckel? I have checked the latter's website and they don't seem to have a newer catalogue either.

I have seen a 37cm oval cocotte in cherry red for sale in an online store however according to the 2009 catalogue on the Staub website the Vitamins (funky colours) do not come in sizes larger than 33cm. Is this the case whihc means that the 37cm cherry oval cocotte is a counterfeit? Or has Staub brought out a 37cm cherry oval cocotte since then?

Also when I look at the pictures of cherry red cocottes on google some of them show the pans as one solid colour which is the same all over the pot and some others show them as a nice two toned colour. Is this just a picture fault? Are all the Staub cherry red cocottes in a two toned colour?

Sorry about all the questions but just want to make sure what I am buying before I splash all that money.

PS: I have attached two pictures below which demonstrate the colour comparison.
